Jessica Power is an Online Business Owner, a Commercial/Fashion Model,
Mother to Eva & Ben and Wife to Eoghan, living in Youghal by the Sea.
I set up my Online Craft Business jesterdesign on the 22nd October 2013, while on maternity leave with my first baby, creating soft baby headbands, personalised jute tote bags, hand painted wooden gifts and box frames.
I had my second baby 15 months after my first and it was while I was on maternity leave for the second time, decided to give up my permanent secure job and take a chance on my own business full time.
On the 15th November 2016 I set up my Multi-Award Winning Craft, Interior & Lifestyle Blog Jessica Loves – sharing my love of Crafts, Interiors and Fashion with a bit of family life in between.
In 2017, Jessica Loves was nominated for a Cork Business Award for Cork Small Business of the Year and was shortlisted for Best Craft Blog at the Amara Interior Blog Awards in London. Jessica Loves received the Silver Award in the Corporate Arts & Crafts Category at the V by Very Irish Blog Awards in Dublin and I also took home the Gloria Vanderbilt Award at the Hi Style Awards in Cork.
On the 15th April 2017 I opened up my first Retail Gift Shop & Creative Workshop Studio at 105 North Main Street, Youghal, Co. Cork, rebranding from jesterdesign to Jessica Loves. However, after a tough 2 years in Retail, I had to make the difficult decision to close my pretty Shop and move my Business back Online exclusively.
In 2018, Jessica Loves was again nominated for a Cork Business Award, Hi Style Award, Amara Interior Blog Award and won the Silver Award in the Corporate Arts & Crafts Category at the Irish Blog Awards.
In 2019 and 2020, Jessica Loves was nominated for a Cork Business Award for the 4th year running.
Jessica Loves has featured in various media publications including the Youghal News, the East Cork Journal, the Evening Echo, Hi Magazine, Artisan Magazine and the Chill Insurance Winter Home Interiors eMagazine.
I have also appeared as a Live TV Craft Contributor on Virgin Media’s Ireland:am and as a Fashion Model on RTE’s Today Show.
